Mental Health Watch: Demon-by-Color

We're familiar with the mistaken and dangerous notion that demons cause mental illness but have you ever heard of identifying these demons by color?

Benny Hinn interviews a guy who has developed a "scientific" method by which he can tell you everything about yourself. He (randomly?) assigned values to parts of the brain and then has you fill them in with colored pencils. If you use too much black, brown, or gray, then you have demons in that part of your brain.

Beware this pseudoscientific nonsense. Mental illness is not caused by demons. Your color preference does not give away your history or your health.

Benny Hinn says, "Trust me." 

I say, "Beware."
